Q.

Stained Teeth

Hi Dr.
I took my 3 yr old for her first visit to the dentist last week and he said her back teeth have very dark stains from sweets.
I explained she didnt eat many sweets and if she has fruit juice it is diluted.
My daughter is on a course of antiobiotics at least every 3 weeks. Could this be a reason for stained teeth in youngsters?
